Before he transferred to Oak Hill Academy (Va.), 2020 four-star guard Darius Maddox was plenty aware of Virginia Tech. He began his high school career at St. John’s College High (DC), in the middle of a Hokie hotbed.

But until recently, it was just an awareness for Maddox. A culmination of relationships, which coincided with an official visit last week, led Maddox to commit to Virginia Tech on Friday. He admits that over the past few weeks he’s noticed the Hokies more and more.

“The funny thing is, I’m starting to see more Virginia Tech everywhere, but little stuff like on social media and stuff,” Maddox said. “I was definitely familiar with it. Them being in the ACC and getting better and better each year. I didn’t grow up watching too much, though, actually.”
